"Once extracted you simply switch to the newly created directory and run the setup.sh install script, or thats the theory. Every time I tried running the script it would halt (crash) before even getting to the install program. I looked at the script and found that it was trying to execute a program located at:./setup.data/bin/x86/glibc-2.1/setup.gtk."

"I ran the setup.gtk program and the Loki installer started up ready to install Unreal Tournament. I figured my problems were over and I would soon be playing UT. Not so, the installer defaults to using /mnt/cdrom as the path to the CD. I mount my CD as /cdrom. I changed the path to the CD in the path box and pressed the install button. The hardrive whirried for an amazingly short amount amount of time and the installer proclaimed that the install was a success...."
